As dozens of onlookers watched in utter shock, the magnificent statue seemed to dematerialize, and was swooped up in a w-h-o-o-s-h into what many report as the largest UFO that has come this close to the mainland. None of the people on the ground were harmed. Film at 11. (5 years and 2871 days ago)

I like your UFO and it's in a dramatic setting. However, the water reflection doesn't match the vanishing point of the water itself. The huge UFO does not seem to be casting any shadow (light source for background seems to be high upper right). And I don't get the big cloud weirdly coming in to the center of the UFO. Also, the odd gradient border on the lower half is inexplicable and adds nothing to the image IMO. (Using the source image without correcting the slanted horizon/statue made positioning your UFO even more challenging.)

Independence day!!!

Agreed with Dan. Like the UFO, but not blended very well into the image. Remember, one thing is to make a UFO, another is to make it realistic enough that someone in high-def could not tell the difference.

author says:

thanks for your comments, Dan, made some changes per your critique.

like this very well done..

avatar gamemastertips

Bit better now, but still kind of fuzzy. I think it's the clouds--it's impossible to blend them over all that realisticly. Perhaps a clear sky would make a cleaner effect? It's up to you. Also perhaps you should overshadow liberty entirely, as the UFO is directly above her.

author says:

thank you, gamemastertips, you're right, now she's in shadow, but I want the clouds to stay, so they 'go with her' up into the ship. I have sharpened the ship a bit also using the method in a tut I found.

Author, Dan was strait to the point. He wasn't rude or say anything like this sucks. He also made a lot of good points. Sounds like you are the one that can't take constructive criticism.

author says:

Excuse me, jawshoewhah, but I certainly DID make some changes per the critiques, and took them gratefully. It is still MY chop, tho, and I left the things in that I thought it needed - IMHO.

avatar DanLundberg

I completely agree that in the end it's the author's artistic perogative to do whatever he or she wants (consistent with the theme, of course ).
